Analysis of HLA associations among North Indian HIV-positive individuals co-infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

2015 Sept-Oct;32(5):449-452

Lung India

Background: Genetic variation in HLA genes influence the immune response and may thus contribute to differential development of tuberculosis (TB) in HIV‑infected individuals. The study was designed to determine whether HLA polymorphisms influence the development of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in HIV‑infected individuals. Materials and Methods: Fifty HIV‑positive individuals without TB (HIV+TB−), 50 HIV patients co‑infected with TB (HIV+TB+) and 50 control subjects (HIV‑TB‑) were analyzed for HLA Class I and II polymorphisms. Results: In HLA Class II, frequency of occurrence of DRB1*13 (OR 3.165, CI 1.176–8.518, P value 0.019), DRB5 (OR 2.253, CI 1.011–5.019, P value 0.045) and DQB1*06 (OR 2.705, CI 1.197–6.113, P value 0.016) were increased in HIV+TB+compared to HIV+TB−. HLA DQB1*02 (OR 0.436, CI 0.185–1.029, P value 0.05) on the other hand conferred a protective role. In HLA Class I, frequency of B*15 (OR 2.705, CI 1.040–7.036, P value 0.038) was increased, whereas B*51 (OR 0.148, CI 0.031–0.706, P value 0.007) was decreased in HIV+TB+group compared to HIV+TB−. These differences however were not significant when compared with healthy controls. Conclusion: HLA polymorphisms independently did not account for the susceptibility to either of the disease mostly, although they seem to play a role once the infection(s) has established in a particular individual. Further studies are needed on a larger sample size to confirm these observations.
